About Sue Cornbluth

Dr. Sue is a clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at Temple University. She began her career in the field of foster care. It was there that Dr. Sue learned how to connect with abused children through building a safe, trusting relationship with each child she counseled.

Sometimes in life your passion finds you! That’s what happened to Dr. Sue 12 years ago. She walked into a facility that provided therapy to underprivileged kids and walked out feeling inspired to educate parents and professionals about how to empower children to be successful in life.

For Dr. Sue, it was the most rewarding work that she had ever done and catapulted her into writing and publishing a training manual last year entitled, “The Ambiguous Foster Child: Attachment, Separation, Loss & Loyalty.” The manual has received national recognition and is used for trainings at several child welfare facilities throughout the country.

Dr. Sue is also known as “The Parent Empowerer.” Her passion is to make a difference in the lives of all children by educating parents and professionals in how to help children succeed in life. To that end, Dr. Sue was recently named the National Spokesperson for a new child development program called Complete Child Development 1.1 which is based on the teachings of the bestselling book and movie “The Secret.”

Dr. Sue is a regular contributor to Foster Focus Magazine, Parents Express Magazine, and Examiner.com, where she is the National Foster Care/Adoption Expert and writes a weekly column on pertinent issues relating to foster care youth and child abuse. Dr. Sue has been honored by The Child Welfare League of America for her work in foster care. She was also honored this year as "Woman of the Week" in Philadelphia for her work with underprivileged children. She is a trainer for the Pennsylvania Council of Children,Youth and Family Services and travels throughout the country speaking at conferences about her work.

Dr. Sue can also be seen and heard on television and radio. Most recently, Dr. Sue was featured as an expert in interviews by Philadelphia area news outlets including The Philadelphia Inquirer, Comcast Network, KYW NewsRadio, Clear Channel Radio, Greater Media Philadelphia, NBC 10, 6ABC and Fox 29 News as a voice for the victims in the Jerry Sandusky child abuse case.

Dr. Sue is happily married to her husband Darrin and they have two children, Jacob and Lindsay!
